Nose: Aromas of sweet melted chocolate and fresh vanilla bean

Palate: Mouth-filling and plush, this liqueur hits your palate like a rich black-and-white milkshake—one that’s spiked with whiskey.

Finish: Tongue-coating and confectionary, with warm notes of the whiskey, cocoa powder, and vanilla

Our Review

Baileys was apparently born under the guise of necessity being the mother of invention—in this case, a smart liquor executive named Tom Jago who worked for a massive U.K. wine and spirits conglomerate named Gilbeys. He had the idea to make a surplus of rough whiskey more palatable to a broader audience by combining it with good Irish dairy. And so a star was born.

Today, the company won’t reveal the source of the whiskey used in the cream liqueur, but it is indeed Irish, it says, as is the luxurious cream that gets emulsified into it. In some ways, Baileys feels a bit like the kind of drink a kid is likely to sneak out of their parent’s liquor cabinet because it’s the most palatable liquid with a boozy kick: velvety, sweet, and lip-smacking. But the liqueur’s whiskey backbone nicely balances its creaminess and combines nicely with the chocolate and vanilla elements.

Baileys does indeed contain additional ingredients, including another spirit component, but the company keeps all that info close to the vest. Which is fine: Who really wants to know how all the yummy bits on an ice cream sundae are made? You just want to enjoy it, even if you feel a little bit guilty doing so.

Baileys is described as “the perfect marriage of fresh, premium Irish dairy cream, the finest spirits, aged Irish whiskey, and a unique chocolate blend.” The devil’s in that second point: There are other spirits in Baileys aside from Irish whiskey, likely grain alcohol designed to give this a bit of a kick (and for less cash than whiskey would cost).

There’s not a hell of a lot of whiskey flavor in Baileys, but it’s there — a vanilla and oak-soaked character that works well as a foil to the light chocolate and caramel notes, all whipped together with the milkiness of the cream.

Hey, at this point Baileys offers few surprises to the experienced drinker. It’s a standby for a reason — it does what it does reliably and consistently. Baileys tastes just fine, but all of those flavors are on the lighter side, gentle and uncomplicated and perhaps a bit staid. The good news is that Baileys doesn’t overdo it with the sugar, so while the finish sticks to the insides of your cheeks for longer than you might like, what’s left behind is cocoa-dusted, with just a kiss of whiskey.
